Memorial Day and All-Year Deals for Military, Friends, and Family

I have never been in the military. Yet, I notice how much people who have never served benefit from Memorial Day. Not out of ill will or out of voluntary design. It is what it is. However, the fact remains that Memorial Day is big business for corporate retail concerns. They go out of their way to bombard us with advertisement about Memorial Day sales, discounts, and deals.

This year, Americans will spend $36 billion shopping on Memorial Day. Each American will spend about $486. There will be a lot of savings to be had. That is all well and good. However, I had made a pledge to inform active duty members, veterans, and their families, of the Memorial Day discount benefits that are available to them. Many may not know, or, may be too proud to act on them.

Memorial Day is a day to remember every soldier who died fighting for this country. However, we can also find ways to show respect to our active and veteran service members as well. After all, why should we benefit from this holiday more than them?

All you have to do is present your military ID for redemption. Unfortunately, the offer only lasts throughout the month of May.

Get the Facts

Businesses are legally required to offer such deals and discounts and can alter them, or cancel them, as they see fit. If you or someone you know is planning to redeem such offer in-store instead of online its best to call ahead. Always bring all valid ID and any accompanying documentation.  Read all fine print to be aware of all conditions, exclusion clauses, and redemption timeframes, if they apply. While it’s great that participating businesses want to show respect to active duty and veteran military members, never forget that for them, it all business.
